The Wizard of Oz
The classic tale "The Wizard of Oz" is directed by Kathy Genevie. This joint production of the Abbeville Opera House Youth Theatre and the Opera House players is written by L. Frank Baum.

Hank Williams: Lost Highway
The musical classic "Hank Williams: Lost Highway" is directed by Jimmy O. Burdette. This spectacular musical biography of the legendary singer-songwriter frequently mentioned alongside Louis Armstrong, Robert Johnson, Duke Ellington, Elvis and Bob Dylan as one of the great innovators of American popular music, follows Hank Williams' rise from his beginnings on the Louisiana Hayride to his triumphs on the Grand Ole Opry to his eventual self-destruction at twenty-nine. Along the way, we are treated to indelible songs like "I'm So Lonesome I Could Die”, "Move It on Over" and "Hey, Good Lookin'," which are given fresh and profound resonance set in the context of Williams' life.

At The Abbeville Opera House, we are committed to giving you the very best theatre experience possible from the moment you walk through the door and that includes helping you make informed decisions about which productions to see with your children. Be sure to inquire at the box office if the play is family friendly. In consideration of our many adult patrons, we ask that you do not bring children under the age of six into the theatre - except for our Youth Theatre performances. We appreciate your understanding.
“Get a babysitter. You’ll enjoy the show a whole lot more … and so will the people around you.”
